I’m trying (yet again) to get back into reviewing teas on Steepster. I love the community and always miss this place :)

One of the reasons I’m trying to get back in is because I bought a new milk frother to make tea lattes with! I’m a sucker for London Fogs and want to try replicating those at home. I saw a review on the milk frother that said this tea was a great way to do just that! I was excited to see that Stash had a loose leaf version and bought that, not realizing I was buying an entire pound of tea that I had never tried before!

I brewed this today with my amateurly frothed milk (definitely needs practice!). I was getting Earl Grey bergamoty flavors, as well as a kind of floral perfumey bitterness. I’m not sure if I got a bit too much lavender or steeped it too long or what! I added some simple syrup and that smoothed out the bitterness but covered up the lavender.

Now that it’s cooled off to a kind of lukewarm temp, I’m getting more lavender as well as a more distinctly orange flavor. I have a whole pound of this tea to get through so I’m looking forward to playing around with it! Maybe I’ll even try to get into baking and cooking with tea!

Flavors: Citrus, Floral, Lavender, Orange

Well, hello there! A pound definitely gives you lots to experiment with. Lemon lavender pound cake? Lavender brownies?

I"ve been wanting to try this one but can’t find it anywhere nearby. It’s always out of stock. Must be a mostly online only product.

Thanks everyone! I found some earl grey lavender cookies I might have to try out! And lavender brownies sound amazing

Lexie, I definitely will have some to share if you ever need it lol. And I saw a few different options online, but you might only be able to get loose leaf in the one pound bag!

I’ve never made anything with lavender except suggestions ;)

Aww Thsnks (: Earl Grey Cookies sound delicious! There’s a local coffee shop here that makes the best earl grey shortbread cookies and uses a lavender frosting for the filling.

I’ve lived in Hawaii, Mississippi, Colorado, Maryland, Texas, California, and Oklahoma. I’m just waiting to see where we end up next!

My preferences are towards black and oolong teas but I love trying new and/or weird teas! I’m finally learning to enjoy green tea.

We recently moved to about 6500 feet above sea level and I’m still trying to get the hang of the lower boiling point! Any tips would be appreciated :)

I really love swapping, so if anything in my cupboard catches your eye, please let me know!
